I'm a Micellar Water Convert—Here Are the 12 Best I've Tried

I'm going to be really honest here: I didn't think micellar water had a place in my skincare regime. In my mind, it was a fancy word for makeup remover, and I was happy with my oil cleanser, thank you very much. Then, after hearing everyone, their mum and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley say how great it was, I decided to finally give Bioderma Sensibio H2O a go, and honestly, it really is great. It removed all my makeup—black eyeliner, mascara, tinted moisturiser, concealer, eyebrow pencil, bronzer and blush. (Yes, I do wear makeup for Zooms.) But it's not just how well it removed all the dirt on my face; it's also how it left my skin afterward. It didn't feel tight or dry. In fact, it felt quite smooth. I still cleansed with my usual Elemis face wash, but I liked that the micellar water had been so effective. I didn't see any leftover eyeliner on the towel when I dried my face. What I'm saying is I'm a micellar water convert, so I decided to give you a list of my favourites. Keep scrolling for more.
